Alum Radiator with a Stock Shroud?

Any pics of what this set up looks like? I know it won't be stock but thought it might look good.

Just looking for opinions.

Thanks

They do look good (at least mine does).

If your radiator didn't come with built in lower shroud supports, just get them from Summit.

I think Alumitech makes a radiator that looks factory except out of aluminum. The Chevelle guys love them

Thanks Don,
Yesterday I sent Entrophy an email asking a few questions. Still haven't heard back.
You mentioned on another post to me you used the driver side factory well nuts to mount the radiator to allow for flex. What does that look like? My current radiator is just bolted to the support.

Thanks again,
John

Re: Alum Radiator with a Stock Shroud?

I have a Griffin 26" wide universal 1 1/4" core radiator in my car. Welded on my own brackets that fit in the stock holes. I used the factory upper shroud mount, and the lower I used stainless springs to sandwich the radiator between shroud and core support.

Entrophy was out of shrould clips, he just got some in (picked up rad & clips about an hour ago) 4-8-2011. he can be hard to get a hold of at times. the rad looks Great, did not see the inside of the shop but he said he makes them right there.
